The Prowler is a cheap but strong Battleship.


Description

The Prowler is a moderately fast battleship that is incredibly cheap, Hull-breaking and durable.

Interior

The interior of the Prowler is detailed, with black and grey striped walls, a black floor with grey studs, and a black computer terminal with a holographic model of the ship in front of it, resembling the interior of the Galaxy.

Advantages

  • While not overly fast for its class, it does retain decent speed while also having fair firepower.
  • Turns and accelerates rather quickly, giving it the feeling that it's faster than it really is.
  • The cheapest Battleship available.
  • Great for finishing off ships via Capital Cannon.
  • Decent healthpool.

Disadvantages

  • The armament is directed more towards Hull breaking, it is rather ineffectual against small Ships.
  • Has a large profile, allowing it to be hit easily.
  • Somewhat slow compared to other battleships.
  • If you can't hit the spinals, shield damage is really low.

Strategy

  • Use the turn speed to keep all Turrets pointed on your enemy as you use the phasers to wear down their Shields.
  • Avoid PvP with larger, more powerful Ships, as well as maneuverable smaller Ships.
  • It is a very resistant battleship, this means it could tank more than other battleships.
  • If you are fighting a big or medium ship, your turrets can easily pick on its hull rather quick.
  • Use this ship to finish off other ships as its cannon weaponry will decimate hull quickly and has enough health to dive a ship back to its starbase.

Version History

  • Immediately nerfed upon addition in version .66b -- Cargo Hold reduced from 1,750 to 200.
  • Buffed in .66b, increasing its shield from 4500 to 4550 and its hull from 3350 to 3650
  • Shields reduced to 3000 and Hull reduced to 3350 in version .69a1.

Trivia

  • Was originally planned to be a ship for Halloween, but was added in as a normal ship before it could become one.
  • 1 of the only 2 battleships to have a Capital Turret, the other being Snowfall.
